Mankins inactive against Rams

The Patriots have officially submitted their Week 8 inactive players, and offensive lineman Logan Mankins once again is out of action. The Patriots previously declared six players as out on their Friday injury report.

Mankins, who has been dealing with calf and hip issues, also was inactive against the Jets in Week 7. Look for reserve guard Donald Thomas to start in his place.
